During this period, Savak Kotwal, the other night watchman, was allowed to go to Bombay for a week. Therefore, Bhau kept watch from 4:00 P.M. to 4:00 A.M. each day, and Gustadji kept watch for two hours, from 4:00 to 6:00 A.M. Since Gustadji was also observing silence, Baba and he would converse using hand signs, which Baba highly enjoyed. As soon as Gustadji would come to him, Baba would ask for a bottle of soda water, knowing that Gustadji liked it. Gustadji would hand him the soda, and after a sip, Baba would hand it back for him to drink. When he finished, Baba would ask for a second bottle, and again after a taste, he would give it to Gustadji. This would go on until 6:00 A.M., and Gustadji would return from Baba’s bedside with a glowing smile on his face. This exchange was to be Baba’s last amusement with his old companion.
